Have you noticed the trend to teach electronics and robotics in schools? When a US university uses our OLLO (Inventor) to teach their summer students how to program microcontrollers and sensors (sound, near-infrared light, and touch) and explore wireless communications and controls, homeschool parents sit up and take notice, with good reason! But just think how much more limber your response can be than that of your school district. After all, you don't need to wait for studies to be completed, curriculum to be evaluated and reevaluated for political correctness, or tests to prove that you should add a course. All you need to do is the pick the kit that best meets your child's needs and jump right in to exploring and learning. Your child could even have his or her own robotics camp in your home next week!

Where to Start in Electronics
If your child has never had the fun of learning electronics, you'll want to start there. With DIY Electro-Dough Kit, even a preschooler can learn how circuits are formed, about shorting them out, insulators, and much more. For more advanced electronics we highly recommend Electronics Learning Circuits by Thames & Kosmos. You'll build 70 projects using such neat items as capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), a phototransistor, a switch, 30 contact blocks, cable blocks, a battery holder, a speaker, and a sound integrated circuit.

Where to Start With Robotics
Ready for robotics? We absolutely love the Ollo series for their comprehensive, easy to teach and learn approach. Begin with the Robotis PLAY 600 Pets that gets even first graders experiencing the excitement of robotics as they build their first moving models. Next step? Try the ROBOTIS DREAM Level 1 twelve-week course for ages 7 and up. When your student is ready for a more comprehensive robotics course, you'll want the BIOLOID STEM kit for ages 12 and up. Truly staggering in its depth, the amazing curriculum guide represents twenty-one weeks of comprehensive educational training. With the combination of a flexible construction system and easy-to-use programming software, the Bioloid STEM kit is the best we have seen!
